I note from the web site you cited that symptoms of sleep apnea include depression and the following:
Some Effects of OSA:

•loud snoring •morning headaches •chest pulls in during sleep in young children •high blood pressure •overweight, but not always •a dry mouth upon awakening •depression •difficulty concentrating •excessive perspiring during sleep •heartburn •reduced libido •insomnia •frequent trips to the bath room during the night •restless sleep •rapid weight gain

My question to you is which came first the apnea or the depression and is the treatment for the apnea and subsequent improved sleep helping you cope with the depression? Or are you too far advanced with all this to sort the wheat from the chaff??

> Treatment was definitely recommended for me. Actually, with apnea, it is common to have two sleep studies. In the first, they figure out what is going on. Mine revealed that I stopped breathing 267 times in the six hours I slept in the lab, an average of 42 times per hour.
